The 3-year-old Great Dane was miserable and retching when its owners rushed him to a northwest Portland emergency animal hospital.
It was something he ate!
X-rays showed a stomach full of "a large quantity of foreign material." Nearly two hours of surgery later, Dr. Ashley Magee had the answer -- the dog had consumed 43 1/2 socks.
The Great Dane was discharged home a day after surgery. The owners aren't available for comment but she confirms the dog is alive. No word on what he's eaten lately.
